Tips & Warnings

  • Your state photo ID number is the same number as your driver license number.
  • If you do not have a driver's license, instruction permit, or state-issued I.D, you must show two other forms of identification. One should list your full legal name and full date of birth. If your name has changed since the issuance of these legal documents, you must present proof of a legal name change, such as a marriage certificate or court order.
  • If your state photo ID is expired or if you have changed your address or name, it is not valid and must be updated immediately in order for it to be legal.
